Question about Clarion NX500 Car Video Player

1 Answer

I am trying to update the firmware on my NX500. I have followed all of the direction to do this, but when I get the part where it says to press the set password button all that happens is the set password button moves up a little with the word 'locked' next to it. No number buttons show. So I cant put the passcode in. And i cant back out of it unless I press the NAV button. Then after that, I cant get back into the setup menu.

"problem with printhead" I followed

Updating the firmware for your printer will help fix the problem. You will need to get rid of the error first before you can successfully update your printer. Follow the steps below:
1. Open the cover of the printer > Remove the printhead. If the printhead will not go to the center, turn off the printer and pull the printhead to the center. 2. Once you have the printhead removed, close the cover of the printer and turn on the printer. 3. Once you have the printhead removed, close the cover of the printer. 4. It will ask you to "Open Cover to Install the Printhead". Press the Home icon. 5. It should take you back to the Main menu. 6. Proceed with the firmware update. Just go to and choose the model number of your printer. 7. Once the firmware update is successful, go back to step 1 and install the printhead.

How to reset:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
